OPUS and Steel Bones were warmly welcomed by ‘Build A Bear’ in Milton Keynes and we left with 20 soft toys, some having been customised along with several sets of clothes and accessories. We then visited Smyth’s Toys and purchased items for the Paediatric fitting rooms.
Please join us on Tuesday 21st January at the Prosthetic Rehabilitation Centre for our presentation of resources to the Trust and light refreshments. You will also be able to meet with all staff from both the Orthotic and Prosthetic Departments, representatives from Steeper, Build a Bear, Steel Bones and the Douglas Bader Foundation along with Rob Hurd, CEO of the Trust and Dominic Dodd, Chair of the Board of Trustees.
You are invited to attend the prosthetic centre for coffee and cake and Orthotic Prosthetic Users Stanmore a presentation of resources purchased by funds donated to OPUS by Steel Bones through Tesco bags of help scheme.
There was a fantastic turnout for old and new friends. The gathering was attended by both Carolyn Young from NHS England and Amanda Sarson from Ottobock who both enjoyed talking to everyone and gleaning vital information about living life as an amputee at grass roots level.
We look forward to our next Big meet Up on 20th March 2020.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and made this a truly fabulous event. We were also very pleased to welcome Carolyn from the Prosthetic review who came along and chatted individually to anyone who wished to add their comments to the review.
Thank you also to Step Up, Rlug, and Limbless Association for coming along and supporting OPUS.
The Buttercup Walk is a sponsored 1-mile walk through the grounds of our Stanmore hospital, which is enjoyed by several hundred people every year.
The attractions and entertainments on offer include:
A wide range of stalls
A live band
A dog show
The walk is not a race, and participants can complete some or all of the course, at their own pace and in their own way. We appreciate that some people may not feel able to undertake the walk themselves; if this is the case, you may wish to nominate someone to walk on your behalf.
Following a successful tender application, we are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the contract to provide prosthetic and orthotic services at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. Commencing on April 4th 2016, all parties involved are excited to embark on this new, innovative, 7-year contract.
